Bunker Hill Community College is a two-year college located in Charlestown, Massachusetts, which is a neighborhood of Boston. BHCC is the largest community college in Massachusetts. The College currently enrolls more than 14,000 students in day, afternoon, evening, late-evening, midnight, weekend, in web-based and distance-learning courses, and programs each semester. BHCC is one of the most diverse institutions of higher education in Massachusetts. Sixty-seven percent of the students are people of color and more than half of BHCC's students are women. The College also enrolls more than 800 international students who come from approximately 100 countries and speak more than 75 languages, making BHCC one of the most cosmopolitan institutions of higher education in New England. A secondary campus is located in Chelsea, Massachusetts, and there are three satellite locations in East Boston, Malden, and Boston's South End. The college is part of the Massachusetts community colleges network.

The college opened in 1973 with the Charlestown campus, on the spot of a former state prison and in vicinity of Bunker Hill—site of the Battle of Bunker Hill during the siege of Boston in the Revolutionary War.

In recent years, the institution has rapidly gained recognition in the city, the state and beyond due to its graduates successfully transferring into prestigious programs elsewhere, as well as hailed for its innovative distance learning methods and workforce education. The college was awarded nearly $2 million in federal funds from the U.S. Department of Education to boost graduation rates among first-time, full-time students. BHCC was also recently awarded an Achieving the Dream grant from the Lumina Foundation which will dedicate up to $450,000 toward supporting student success at the college.

The college was featured in the movie Good Will Hunting, as the location where Robin Williams' character teaches. BHCC behavioral science chairperson, John P. Reeves, served as a model for Williams’ character.
